Why acoustic for gyms
Due to their nature, fitness activities generate a high level of structure-borne vibration and noises, particularly at low frequencies.
When selecting the flooring, it is essential to check that the isolation it provides is enough for the needs of the gym. Weight drops, jumps, heavy equipment… this is the everyday of a gym flooring and it can damage the building structure, as well as cause legal problems with the neighbours
Don’t put your business at risk and choose the best acoustic isolation!
Nowadays, gyms can be located anywhere: next to an office building, below some apartments or even in the top floor of a skyscraper. The noises and vibrations produced when exercising, such as weight impacts or jumps, can be very annoying for neighbours.
GYMS HAVE TO TAKE SPECIAL CARE WITH IMPACT NOISE
This is the type of noise that is produced when people speak or music plays: the air vibrations propagate as waves, exciting components such as the walls and ceiling.
This is the type of noise produced inside the building structure: water pipes in a wall,hammering or drilling or household appliances.
This sound is transmitted directly to the structure of the building through the floor and walls. For fitness facilities, this is the kind of noise that causes problems and damages the building.
WHEN FREQUENCIES ARE LOW, WORRYING BECOMES HIGH.
For a person with normal hearing, when it comes to pitch, the human hearing range starts at a low level of around 20 Hz. The highest possible frequency heard without discomf ort is 20,000Hz
Pavigym solutions start absorbing from 10 Hz, even before the noise became perceptible… So the sound becomes silence!
